Born in New Jersey, Francesca grew up with a passion for music and performing. Living just outside of New York City allowed her the opportunity to visit frequently and wander Broadway, dreaming of one day being on the stage.
Beginning her musical studies with cello, Francesca started playing in her school orchestra at the age of 10. Not long after, she felt compelled to try songwriting and began writing every day; mimicking the styles of Jewel, Lisa Loeb, and Alanis Morrisette.
At 13, she decided to trade the cello for an acoustic guitar and within a few months she was performing in concerts at school and at local coffeehouses.
Throughout high school, Francesca focused her vocal training in Classical and Musical Theatre. She performed in several productions including “Bye, Bye, Birdie”, “Pippin”, “Oliver!”, and as the Narrator in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”.
After graduation, Francesca moved to Boston to continue studying music at Berklee College of Music and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Music. While living in Boston, Francesca performed locally as a solo artist and eventually with her band, Blue Shift. The band toured locally (Boston, NYC and NJ) and released an EP, “State of Motion” in 2009. But soon the cold Boston weather would become too much for Francesca, prompting her leap over to the West coast.
Now, LA-based, Francesca considers herself right at home in the sunshine, surrounded by so much talent and creativity. She has been focused on honing her craft with acting, performing on stage recently at the Atwater Playhouse Theater in Yog Sototh and Dangerous Items. You can also see her in the web series, Guy, which will be released in early 2019.
Additionally, Francesca has sung in various projects including the San Fernando Valley Master Chorale, CSUN Studio Orchestra Choir performance with special guest composer John Debney. She is a Soprano for the Voices of Christmas and Jingle 5 A Capella caroling companies, and most recently, with Vox Harmonix.
